Description: Can we celebrate distinctive identities and at the same time transcend them? How do we understand the twin desires to stand apart and to insist on inclusion? In this talk Jeffrey O. G. Ogbar,
Vice Provost for Diversity at the University of Connecticut, takes up these questions, drawing upon his own research in African American history and culture. He will discuss both Black Power and hip-hop as examples for fostering multi-racial spaces, suggesting how groups construct and transcend demographic boundaries. Ogbar will conclude by considering the connections between his research and his administrative work supporting diversity at a large public research university.
